Cristiano Ronaldo hires Messi lookalike for kids' Santa surprise
The Juventus forward posted a Christmas message online with a photo of his children and Santa Claus, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Barça star.
Football players like nothing more than to wish their online fans a happy Christmas but Cristiano Ronaldo went a step further by posting a family picture on the beach with Santa Claus, who bears a striking resemblance to Barcelona star Leo Messi.
Ronaldo is on holiday in Abu Dhabi after Juventus lost to Lazio in the Italian Super Cup last week in Saudi Arabia and posted a message to his fans wishing them all a merry Christmas. However, sharp-eyed observers could not help but notice that the Santa Claus the Portuguese had hired for the photograph was a dead ringer for his friend and rival Messi.

The man in the suit is not Messi – the Argentinean is in his native Rosario for the Christmas holidays – but the image nonetheless did the rounds on social media with some asking if it was pure coincidence or a little bit of fun on Ronaldo’s part.
Juventus and Ronaldo return to action on 6 January against Cagliari in week 18 of the Serie A season with Maurizio Sarri’s side neck and neck with Inter Milan on 42 points.
